Roger Clemens talked in 1999 or 2000 about
using human growth hormone. That what former New York Yankee
teammate Andy Pettitte has told Congress in a sworn affidavit.
A person familiar with the affidavit says Pettitte revealed the
conversation to the congressional committee holding Wednesday's
hearings on drug use in baseball. The person spoke on condition of
anonymity because the document has not been made public.
The existence of the affidavit first was reported by The New
York Times.
Clemens is scheduled to square off against his former personal
trainer, Brian McNamee, who has said he injected Clemens with
steroids and human growth hormone. Clemens has vigorously denied
it.
